The WERCER BOX
commemorative 40 years !Woodstock MERCER BOX
The limited edition WERCER
BOX is a commemorative pedal for the 40th anniversary of the Woodstock
event. This pedal will be offered all along the year 2009,of course, if I have
enough transistors ---needlesss to say the ordered pedal will be handwritten 1969-2009 unlike this sample .
Based on the acclaimed MERCER BOX circuit, the WERCER uses original 1969 VALVO OC76 English Germanium transistors, taken from Royal Air Force signal corp surplus. You may say this is a gimmick. Read this ...
2-THE VALVO OC76
If you are familiar with germanium transistors, you know that they are now considered obsolete -- except by stompbox weirdoes like we are!-- because their quality and technical data are far from good. I usually dump 8 AC128 out of 10 when I select them for my MERCER BOX.
But here, young lad, this is different. I have never experiment with such good quality even in modern famous brand silicium transistors. These babies do not vary more than 2% one from the other, and all of them has perfect gain and noise data, making them the PERFECT transistor for distortion use. The tone result is so good I could cry. The only thing is that I have only a limited number of them, making therefore this edition a limited one.
With every WERCER BOX ,
you will receive:
1- A certificate of authenticity signed by me mentioning the original VALVO OC76 components.
2- A beautiful fuxia scarf, similar to the one Jimi wore on that occasion (see pic)
3- SUBJECT TO MODIFICATION : An unique autographed testimony of a woman who "met" Jimi during several English festivals between 1967 and 1969.
Honest, can you resist ?
More Jimmy you can stomp
on : a deluxe purple HAZE wercer box version , with LED indicator.
